“While the song is specific to Dublin, I think the sentiment is universal,” she said, “the longing of emigrants, or those far from home, to be with family. ‘Christmas in Dublin’ is written from the point of view of the one who is away from home but it’s also about the parents and grandparents left behind.”

The song features drummer Miki Belton and the Music Matters senior string ensemble, led by Karen Dervan. Dervan is a professional viola player, arranger and producer who has performed with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, RTÉ Concert Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra, Wexford Festival Opera, and Lyric Opera Orchestra.

‘Christmas in Dublin’ will be available via iTunes and all streaming platforms.
